The prevention of alloxan induced diabetes by amygdalin


Life Sciences 27(8): 659-662
The prevention of alloxan induced diabetes by amygdalin
Amygdalin given to male Swiss-Webster mice i.p. at 3g/kg 1 h prior to 75 mg/kg i.v. of alloxan, was able to protect against the diabetogenic actions of alloxan. The protection by amygdal in apparently is due to its scavenging of the deleterious and highly reactive hydroxyl radical which was generated from alloxan. Several other mechanisms of protection are also viable.
